In order to survive, the youth had to set foot on the battlefield of many death trials, while learning how to love, and struggling to become stronger.

Another name for the novel — A scary fight between my Ex-Girlfriend, my Childhood Friend, my Fiancée and my Lover.


Not everyone wants to live a life filled with fame, riches, glory, and honor. Some, just want the easy life. To live a life that simply plays itself over and over, with a hint of spice here and there.

To our young hero Yun Xi, he felt his calling for bread. He did not want to be the Godly Swordsman of old, nor the Majestic Immortal Emperor. He just wanted to be a plain-old breadmaker.

Yet, his dreams are crushed when he is given a revelation of the stars. From now on, how will his life change?

Even though this novel has only been translated until ch. 7, I'm throughly hooked by the concept of the story.

... more>>

so you see this story pictures a boy who's chosen by the stars which is why the title called starchild. The story begins with his ordinary life as a baker. He doesn't want to become a swordman. But the situation later on forced him to become stronger in order to not get killed by his 4 ridiculously powerful ex girlfriends in his past life (MC has power which enables him to revive whenever he gets killed, in his past life he was killed by his 4 ex girlfriends). It seems that he gains power by completing trials which are given by his spirit (LOLI). His first trial requires him to conquer a beauty.


That's all I can say for now as I haven't read further. In short it's funny and full if comedy. It worths every bit of your time. <<less

This is good stuff

  • MC is likeable, he's basically a normal guy suddenly thrust into a yandere maelstrom
  • So far, it hasn't really fallen into the usual xianxia trope
  • Be aware that this is harem, i.e. Pretty much all the girls the MC meets (up to now) like him
  • There are a few mildly disturbing scenes, like a 12 (and 9) year old girl making out with him as of 118.

  • Translations are very slow
  • The raws are locked behind paywall
I need more.

First off, don't go into this novel thinking that you'll get a super serious and well thought out piece of masterwork. The novel is more on the comedic and rediculous side.

With that out of the way I will now describe the feel that I'm getting from this novel. And it really does feel like a darksouls crossover with a dating sim. Everytime the MC has to fight an enemy he's always lower levelled in crappy gear while going against superior boss level waves. He doesn't magically one hit ko them,... more>> rather, he has to suffer a lot to best them.

In this novel, the MC is and probably will always be overshadowed by his yandere gf's in terms of power. But that's what makes the story fun. It's about a person desperately trying to survive his harem of OP yandere gf's in rediculous circumstances with a plot that doesn't take itself too serious. Oh and it has got some ecchi in it. <<less

The interesting of this novel is MC. He not your typical arogant xiaxia and smart MC. He just a mere baker with exeption he is good-looking. Who has no interest in martial arts. Just a simple life in plain dough. Life just put him in a difficult situations as it thicken

This is going to be good for character delevopment since he no experience in fighting.

It would totally give this a recommendation.

Best way to sum this up is Dark Souls dating sim where all the bosses are yandere girls that join the MCs harem, or just try to kill him. Quite original and enjoyable compared to your standard Xuanhuan.

I'm not ashamed to say that I like yandere, so that's the reason why I vehemently enjoyed reading this novel.

... more>>

The MC is not a human but a celestial being that was born from the stars, he's not only an immortal but he's also a yanderes/ chicks magnet, where ever he go, he will make girl fall for him.


This story also have a system which is kinda like another novel that I currently reading "Hedonist Sovereign" but the system is different just to make it clear.

Any way is a good read, but the chapters are little short. <<less

I don't honestly know how far I'll get into this story. It's got a novel concept and for the most part it's decent enough but it goes on and on about the same things.

I mean the premise itself is innovative, and most other aspects of the story are up to par, however, since it keeps repeating things I just might drop it.

So yeah if you don't mind how the author keeps reiterating things, this is at the very least an above average story. On the other hand because it gets... more>> kind of annoying who knows how long I'll be able to put up with it.

Get the idea? Or do I need to repeat myself, just to be sure.

TLDR; Okay premise, annoying execution. Repetitive, but unique-ish start. <<less

Starts out well. Simple man living simple life and enjoys it. His good at what he does and plans to do it for the rest of his life. Until he is killed by Yanderes.

Problem comes when things get a bit too grand. It goes from simple, while hinting at other higher rankings and positions to talking about supreme dragon gods. The problem with this is that it all mixes together there are 4 gods, but it was; supreme this and gods of goddesses that. Got bored.

First of all the rating I am going to give is 5/5 for the story while 4/5 for the translator. The novel really is awesomely epic because rather than a person trying to have a cliche goal like becoming stronger, or protecting others, it's the other way around he need to become stronger not to protect others but to protect himself. Also the novel is quite satisfying to read because of the lightness it gives. Also the girls that are chasing him really gives lots of good comedic scenes.

As for... more>> the translator, the translation is good, but the releases aren't that great.
overall 5/5 the story is like a new type of genre you'd be able to read. <<less

The word "sword" is repeated so many times, what the f**k lol. I swear it's like every second line and is mind numbing.

Let's hope the writing gets better as the premise isn't bad at all.

*chapter 3-4

... more>> What the f**k is going on, how does anyone follow what's happening, so lost.

Okay the cross dressing, when it first happened and how it happened I found it hilarious... that was until I realised he'd be doing this for a long time... So It's not bad but it's not good either, still a fun story though.

Last comment I'll add - the only major qualm I have is that the author repeats himself way too much, words, phrases it's a little mind numbing so it makes you skip text a lot.

But because it's pretty funny and interesting it's rating is anywhere between 4.0 - 4.5 <<less
